Come play the oldest and cruelest game, Backgammon

Welcome to where you can partake in playing the world's oldest board game, Backgammon, head-to-head against other real players.

Backgammon is an exciting game that challenges the mind like no other. It is sometimes misunderstood as a simplistic game of random dice rolls and chip moves. In a short study, you will quickly learn this game is not as simple as it first appears.

The roots of Backgammon go way back to the Roman Empire and before. "Senat" sets, from which come modern day backgammon boards, have been found in tomb from ancient Egypt, Turkey and other middle eastern countries, almost all of which claim to be the birthplace of Backgammon, aka: Tavla, making the origin of the game over 5,000 years old.
